“Police say that it began with a fight involving a group of students in a stairwell, when one student fired a gun, ABC Philly reported. “The other students fled the area and reported the incident. When officials investigated, they found a spent shell casing and placed the school on lockdown.”

There is no word yet on whether a gun has been recovered by investigators.
